A Christmas “Gift of Money” Envelope
In this joyous season, along with jolly Santa clauses, gaily bedecked Christmas trees, resplendent Reeves of for her and Holly, holiday lighting on streets and in stores, the banks and a practical touch with their ‘Christmas Clubs’.
In a grandfather’s eyes there is a more idealistic and personal form of Christmas club which far transcends the dollars and cents variety.
In my greeting to you this year, tying the two together is my way of proudly displaying the ‘decorations’that make this season a 20-fold (count ’em) blessing to me.
To a valued friend like yourself I am hoping some of my reverent appreciation will carry over to you in a generous share of Christmas good-will that thoughts of you always bring to mind.

This is the picture of the Guion House in New Rochelle that Grandpa used on these Guion Home Development Bank & Trust Bills used for his 1963 Christmas Card. This picture of the Guion House was used by J. Marshall Guion IV in his “The Descendants of Louis Guion, Equyer, A Guion Family History.
The Guion Coat of Arms Grandpa used for this Christmas Card. It is different from the one that J Marshall Guion IV used in his book mentioned above. I don’t know where this one came from. I believe different members of the same family could have different Coats of Arms, distinguishing them from relatives.There actually may be quite a few Guion Coats of Arms.
Tomorrow, the last Christmas Card from Grandpa along with a Final Message he had prepared in advance.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, I’ll post Special Pictures.
This is so clever! I was going to say it’s the best one yet, but perhaps I should reserve judgment until tomorrow?
“The Best One YET” is perfectly alright, but please wait until tomorrow before making a final judgement on your favorite.
